lying down, upper back propped on pillow, legs stretched out and crossed

Pixie Cherries 12-28-2007 08:12 AM

My favorite is on my airbed propped up on pillows reading a book.

(My unfavorite is now. At my computer, sitting on a broken desk chair that slowly goes down and then I stand up pull the lever and it goes back up. This goes on all day. Bad for your disposition. Good for your thighs.)

Bman 12-28-2007 03:53 PM

The first five minutes I spend in any chair is trying to fold my left leg under my right thigh. If the chair doesn't allow this I make a mental note to never sit there again.

depends on size (of various things).
i'm telling you though, that old kitchen table thing is way over-rated,
and as for in the car...
bed is best, comfy, and lots of room for manouvre (sp?)

;)

I've always liked this one, playing black.

madasacutsnake 12-28-2007 10:39 PM

What do you grow?

Pics and growing tips welcome.

I've got fenugreek in a herb pot and a blue bird of paradise.

A ficus benjamina I finally found the right place for (note: NO direct sun), a cactus who loves the direct sun, a yucca cane (ditto) and a purplish pink phalaenopsis orchid. Best thing I can tell you about the orchid is stick it in the dark and forget about it for a month after it's done blooming. A month at least.

Yay!! Orchids are so cool and easier to grow than one thinks.

I'm growing despondent because i can't tell anybody what the best thing I got for Christmas anymore.

I also grow an acacia vine inside, from a clipping that my husband got from his grandfather before he died. It blooms with these funky little flowers every year that look plastic. the leaves stays healthy and green-looking, even if you forget to water it for a month. then it lets you know by shrivelling a little, but it bounces right back. Very very easy to propagate - just stick it in water and it will grow roots. It'll be very happy for years just sitting in the water, too. Very easy-going plant.

Frieda 12-29-2007 06:43 AM

erm

inside:
  • orchids: 2x phalaenopsis, 1x cambria, 1x dendrobium, 1x oncidium, 1x cattleya
  • 3x hippeastrum in several colors
  • 1 cactus
  • 3x smaller kalanchoe that i just got and one bigass kalanchoe that has grown into a big mf in 3 years
  • 1 small fern
  • 1 aloe vera

outside on the balcony:
  • 2 small conifers,
  • 2 big baskets of daffodils
  • 3 flowerpots of muscari
  • 5x hellebore in several colors (not blooming yet)
  • 1x lavender
  • 1x oleander
and some others that i don't know the names of-- most are in winter recess now except for the bulbs.

edited to add: and a christmas tree! :eek:

zero 12-29-2007 07:19 AM

.
... i grow old … i grow old …
i shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

shall i part my hair behind? do i dare to eat a peach?
i shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
i have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

i do not think that they will sing to me.

i have seen them riding seaward on the waves
combing the white hair of the waves blown back
when the wind blows the water white and black.

we have lingered in the chambers of the sea
by sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
till human voices wake us, and we drown.

also a little oak tree i dug up as a seedling and am bonsaiing

Brynn 12-29-2007 07:24 AM

perhaps one just shouldn't grow old to start with, unless you have a good set of tools.

T.I.P. 12-29-2007 07:27 AM

there is an onion in my kitchen that has started growing tendrils.

i am going to set him free before i move my stuff out tomorrow.

We already know. A new barely used flute you're using to forget the ex-flute. You go, girl!

Brynn 12-29-2007 07:20 PM

Now I can exhale. :)

Frieda 12-29-2007 08:01 PM

question for sunday 30 dec 07

are you going to shoot up some fireworks this year on NYE? why, why not, how much, what did you get, etc? :)

T.I.P. 12-29-2007 08:11 PM

no fireworks this year because of the big move

Frieda 12-29-2007 08:19 PM

aw, i'm sorry.. i promise i will wait till two minutes past midnight tomorrow ;) :D

T.I.P. 12-29-2007 08:19 PM

how 'bout you Frieda ? exploding anything interesting this new year ??

Frieda 12-29-2007 08:45 PM

mm :o

this year i'm blowing up something called the aftershock, the earthquake and the nightlife



the aftershock thing was sold out but the guy at the store told me i could come by later to pick the stuff up because he would probably get a new load.. so tonight i went into the dark alley behind the shop, knocked on a window 3 times and picked up my explosives :rolleyes:

edited to add: yes that earthquake thing is just as ridiculously big as it looks on the picture :o

T.I.P. 12-29-2007 08:54 PM

^ put lots of icing on the "earthquake", and you'll have the perfect cake to offer someone you don't like !

way worse than fruitcake :)

Hyakujo's Fox 12-29-2007 09:05 PM

probably not :rolleyes:

brightpearl 12-29-2007 09:12 PM

Prolly not myself, so my munchkin doesn't blow his fingers off, but the neighborhood kids always put on quite a show in the park across the street. Our porch is a great vantage point.

Btw Frieda, I have all new respect for you. :D
(size matters)

Frieda 12-29-2007 09:33 PM

fox, it's illegal?? wow!

and yes, size does matter indeed :D

madasacutsnake 12-29-2007 10:51 PM

And illegal here too.

lukkucairi 12-29-2007 11:05 PM

um, maybe?

we have a firework someone gave us - it's in the basement - it's from wyoming so I believe it's illegal in this state :rolleyes:

if we're ambitious we might set it off down the street. but maybe not.

auntie aubrey 12-29-2007 11:12 PM

fireworks are illegal in michigan, where i blew up, so i wasn't aware until recently that blowing up fireworks on new years is something people do.

which isn't to say we didn't get our hands on illegal fireworks from across the border for the 4th of july. but take the illegal angle and combine it with 7000 feet of lake-effect snow and you're pretty much robbed of that impulse tout suite. which is probably why i never knew new years was celebrated that way.

to answer your question: i'm blowing up nothing.

craig johnston 12-30-2007 12:59 AM

oh man. in berlin it's already started. fireworks, bangers blah blah.
i wanna be somewhere quiet by the sea!

:(

O FREUDIAN!!!!!

trisherina 12-30-2007 02:07 AM

^^I thought you was just rappin

I have a good-sized Roman candle that my BIL gave us -- it was apparently just rolling around in his truck somewhere and he thought we might like to aim it at the neighbour's snowboard ramp/hockey rink and let 'er rip at midnight on the 31st.

That's one hell of a slip, auntie! :D

No explosions this year, cause there was a bit of an accident in the area last NYE, and let's just say it WASN'T PRETTY.

Plus, the only (non-homemade) explosives a teen can (legally) get his hands on around here are two inches long, shoot confetti, and go "phut". :rolleyes:

Marcus Bales 12-30-2007 03:20 AM

What are your top 3 contenders for your top New Year's resolution?

Odbe 12-30-2007 06:59 AM

1. Never make any more New Year's resolutions.
2. Keep making them, but only ones I want to break.
3. Resolve to put off making resolutions until next year, starting with making this one again.
